Where to enjoy 'snow' in S'pore

Where to enjoy 'snow' in S'pore
The theme park (above) is hosting its second annual snowfall as part of its Christmas At Universal Studios Singapore celebrations.

Dreaming of a white Christmas? You are in luck.

"Snow" is falling in four locations around Singapore this festive season, some with Santas, snowmen and sub-zero temperatures, so you do not have to shell out thousands of dollars to travel overseas.

The coldest attraction is 2Degree Ice Art 2013-2014, an ice art exhibition at Marina Bay Sands till May 15.

Snow falls three times a day in the playground section and the entire 35,000 sq ft hall is kept at a frigid minus 10 deg C.

About 30,000 people have visited the exhibition, which features 29 ice sculptures of world landmarks such as Big Ben and the Eiffel Tower, since it opened on Nov 20.

Those who prefer the look but not the feel of snow can head to Tanglin Mall, where artificial snow foam has fallen for the holiday season since 1996.

Housewife Pat Tan, 42, has been taking her three children, aged eight, six and five, to Tanglin Mall's outdoor snowfall for the past four years.

"It's a treat for them. It's better than driving down Orchard Road to see the lights," she says. "They love playing in the snow bubbles and even though it's not cold, it makes them feel like they're handling real snow."
